LVMAC Tidbit: Free Credentialing Program Available to Veterans

Published by LVMAC on

Want to get a foot in the door in the industrial field without a degree and relatively quickly?  Want to fine tune what you offer to a prospective employer?   Desire to work for the likes of Lutron, B. Braun, Crayola, SussexWire, Victaulic, Tesla, REEB, etc.?

As you might know, LVMAC has been interested in and has promoted more pragmatic ways to labor-matching — micro-credentialing among them — to expedite our returning veterans finding employment.  After all, re-employment is the number one concern of most returning veterans, especially if they have a family to maintain. Finally, interest has developed on this topic in the Lehigh Valley.

In the lead is the Northampton Community College (NCC), which has realized its PA Department of Community and Economic Development-sponsored program for micro-credentialing also has applicability to many veterans.  This offering involves nine weeks of intensive training and at no cost to the veteran (you do not have to tap into your GI Bill benefits); and involves a partnership with local manufacturers seeking employees.  Click here and on NCC MMC Brochure 2019 for more information.

If interested, it is important to register by 24 January.  We were notified late, but have been assured slots are still available for the next course start late in January.  And, there will be future opportunities, regardless.  Due to the late notification, we suggest you call their Student Success Specialist, Jessy, at 610-332-6317, immediately.
